Nope - See sites like this all the time, all pirate. Avoid at all cost. ... As a reseller, I can tell you that cost price for physical media is much higher. Microsoft, Autodesk and other large companies do not authorise anyone to resell digital only copies (usually) and the only place to get a discount for doing it is by going direct - but even still, I ...

Use RtmpSrv. It is bundled with rtmpdmp v.21 onwards: As of 2.1 there are two additional server programs, rtmpsrv and rtmpsuck. rtmpsrv is a stub for a server; it logs the connect and play parameters from a regular client that connects to it. It then invokes rtmpdump with those parameters to retrieve the stream. Usage rtmpdump -r ...

There are a few ways that a website might interfere with a download-manager: The URL to the file is not actually to the file, it is to a page which automatically redirects to the file (this is what you saw). Depending on how the server is configured, and how the download-manager works, the redirect page may not be providing the right information (e.g., ...

Use thttpd. thttpd -d /home/bob/sharedfolder -p 8080 The directory /home/bob/sharedfolder would become accessible at http://address:8080. lighttpd can be used in a similar way, although it needs a tiny config file. For example: server.document-root = "/home/bob/sharedfolder" server.port = 8080 dir-listing.activate = "enable" which is then ...

Free Download Manager is an open source download manager with a powerful scheduler that will let you do exactly what you need. You can create tasks to start all downloads at midnight every night and a 2nd task to stop them all at 5 am. The forum also contains links to the newest beta builds from the developers. They've been, in my experience, very stable. ...

For Linux, wget works great... and it appears that there is a version for Windows, too. wget for Windows

I think any decent download manager has this feature... Googling it, the second result I found is free download manager, free and open source, and the feature list mentions "powerful scheduler", so I guess that would do.

Short answer: NO. However, sites often provide a checksum such as SHA1 or MD5 to help you verify a successful download. You can create the checksum and then Google it. For example, I have a file: VMware-workstation-full-7.1.0-261024.exe which has SHA1 checksum: 5512cb520fc91b8c4ee9b0d6f80d1cfecb0fe50f When I Google the checksum I get the VMware ...

I usually use the "download to local directory" option in the standard installer, and select the packages I want in a base installation. That downloads the packages I want but doesn't install, and I can copy that package directory to a network share or thumbdrive. Add a copy of the Cygwin setup.exe to that local directory, and you've got yourself an ...

I have a modified apt-cyg that runs the installer from the local archive. It really should be submitted as a patch, but never had the time to clean it up, so here goes. Features Offline install Set mirror Cache package so later installs can be faster Force re-instalation even when package is installed Supports setup.ini / setup.bz2 / Use downloader of ...

You might want to try apt-cyg.

Sometimes it is possible to bypass limitations in the server by opening multiple connections. But these restrictions were probably put there for a reason and by deliberately avoiding them you might be breaking the terms of service for the site. Do this with caution.

For wget, the option you are looking for is --bind-address=. Note that You need to have a machine with multiple interfaces, You can only speed up with multiple concurrent downloads, and If there are per-IP restrictions that are intended to be per-user / per-customer restrictions, then by evading them you are in the wrong, even if you are not breaking ...

If she cannot install anything on the laptop, you could upload the .ISO to some web space, or host it on IIS on your computer (forwarding port 80 from your router). You then email her wget, which she saves on the desktop. She then has to open a CMD prompt (assuming that is not locked out as well), and types in: cd %userprofile%\desktop wget -c ...

You can try using wget for windows and enter it's path into your system environmental variables. It's very lightweight and it won't be a bad utility for your system if it's something you want. http://users.ugent.be/~bpuype/wget/

The server may be disallowing the caching of content. According to Microsoft KB article 812935: This issue may occur if any one or more of the following conditions are true: The Do not save encrypted pages to disk check box is selected in Internet Explorer. The server sends the "Cache-Control: No Store" header. The server sends the ...

Your ISP probably has a "boost". So, when you start the download it boosts your speed way up for the first couple of megs (this is common). Or the site you are connecting to could be doing the same thing.

Using python might be easier. So this is a solution using python. If python is not an option for you, then ignore. :) I'm assuming scraping the website is legal. Write a simple Python script to loop through archive_bookname/index.1-177.htm, scrap them using BeautifulSoup, locate the links with either css class selectors or simple regex matching, then use ...

You can specify an input html file with wget -F -i <file> so you could just dump the html files and loop through them (I've added a base url for relative links): for i in <whereYouDumpedFiles>/*.html do wget -F -B <base-url> -i $i done alternatively you could just dump the links to a file (seperated by newlines) by whatever method ...

You can install wget on OS X through Homebrew or MacPorts.* Then, it's as simple as: wget -nd -A jpg,gif -r http://example.com The -nd option does not create a directory for each path segment. -A sets the file types allowed. -r crawls recursively. You can add -l 2 (or similar) to restrict it to two levels of recursion. * If this is too complicated ...

Short answer - YES a virus can be contained within another file type. Files like JPG, MP3 etc all have to be opened and "read" by an executable. By "mal-forming" or injecting special code or data into these files, it can cause programs to fault or to execute code contained within the files - which can in turn cause other problems and give a gateway for a ...
